Join an easy hike through the national parks of Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland that includes two fantastic locations! It is a day trip suited for anyone who wants to have a relaxing day.
After our guide picks you up from your hotel and takes you out of Prague, you will take a journey through Czechia's countryside. Relax and take in the sights of Northern Bohemia's historic region. Along the 2-hour trip to the Saxon-Bohemian Switzerland national park, our local guide will point show you various intriguing locations, such as castle ruins and canyons.
The iconic stone bridge "Bastei" in Germany will be your first visit. Sandstone towers and the ruins of Neurathen castle will take you back to this medieval town's golden heyday. We'll take you on a tour of the park, showing you all of the different vistas and pointing out the greatest photo opportunities. The river Elbe canyon (Europe's deepest!) and various table mountains may be seen below. You'll have plenty of time to take in the splendor of this location with your own eyes. The Bastei bridge is widely accessible, and everyone can take in the breathtaking views.
Then you will have a lunch at a traditional Czech restaurant with a pleasant environment as a reward for completing the first half of your tour. You'll have á la carte menu, which is the best option, and we recommend that you taste some local beers as well (included). Vegan and vegetarian choices are available.
We will take you to the "Gorges of Kamenice River" for the second half of the day, where you will enjoy a 20-minute dinghy trip through a sandstone canyon carved over 100 million years ago. Your guide will lead you through magical corridors and past strange rock formations and stone pillars. A scenery that looks like it belongs to a fairy tale. During your trek through the gorges, keep an eye out for native birds like kingfishers and attempt to see a trout or maybe a salmon.
Enjoy your trip to 2 countries in one day in an easy-going style!
